  • It's a Dancong - a dramatically aromatic type of oolong from Phoenix Mountain (鳳凰山) in Chaozhou. These oolongs are often described as "drinkable perfume".
  • The tea grows in a biodiverse environment with mineral-rich soils, which translates to extra layers and complexity in the flavour of the tea.
  • Our Honey Orchid Scent is grown on Wudong Mountain, one of the highest in the Phoenix Mountain range that is almost perpetually enshrouded in mist. Wudong is home to the purest tea groves and cleanest processing of the entire region.


Honey Orchid Scent is one of the 10 signature fragrances of Phoenix Dancong teas. Dancong (單欉) means “single bush”, i.e., teas consisting of leaves from a single cultivar or plant. In essence this means that more or less each fragrance comes from its own cultivar.

This is an exciting new collection we are proud to offer this year: pure-origin, core-region Wudong Mountain Dancong Oolong. This was our first year sourcing true Wudong Dancong and it is a delight to be able to drink and offer these mineral sweet old-tree teas. Wudong (meaning Dark Soil) is a mountain in the Phoenix range outside of Chaozhou with distinctive volcanic soil and a lot of rocky boulders dotting the landscape. This mountain is home to the first dancong oolong bushes, and its cliffs have seen almost a thousand years of tea-making traditions.

Lin Bugao led the team to select and produce this honey orchid-flavored Wudang Dancong tea. The tea has a very rich aroma, a long aftertaste, and the honey aroma of orchids.

Brewing suggestions
1. It is better to use natural mineral water, traditional "Kung Fu Tea" tea set, one covered bowl and three tea cups (it is better to use bone china for the tea set)
2. Water temperature: 95-100 degrees Celsius. The boiling water must be kept warm to prevent the tea from losing fragrance and taste, and becoming intolerable to brewing.
3. The amount of tea leaves is generally 7g-10g (2/3 of the tureen capacity), whichever is more personal taste.
4. Lift the pot and pour the tea at high pressure, along the edge of the tureen, remembering to pour straight into the center of the tea leaves.
5. The first step is to wash the tea, scrape and rub it to remove impurities contained in the tea leaves.
6. The second bubble starts to produce soup. The first to eighth bubbles all take 1-3 seconds to produce soup. The above ones are extended to 5-8 seconds.
7. Every time you brew tea, be sure to drain the bowl to prevent the tea from soaking into the tea base and making the next brew taste bitter.
8. Smell the aroma of the tea first, then taste the tea, then evaluate the flavor of the tea and reflect on it.

These are just guidelines. As we always say, it’s best to experiment with a range of temperatures and leaf-to-water ratios to understand the tea and your own taste preferences.

P.S Can you please provide me with your phone number when you place the order, it‘s important for delivering the package, thank you in advance :)
